night night baby

This page is about the night-night baby and how much she loves her dad. :) 

I started this page by stamping with my new favourite Cocoa Daisy stamp, and painted them in using green and blue watercolours. This is something I've been wanting to do since I first saw that stamp!
 I added some 2004 patterned paper behind the white cardstock background, and splattered some more blue watercolour around the page, inspired by Celeste's lovely pages in the GIS Calvinball gallery.

This postage stamp frame is an old one from Technique Tuesday, from before 2010.. so is the cute lambie twill (Foofala), and the eyelet lace (vintage stash).

Lots of fun little stars and sparkly bits sprinkled across the top of the page! Definitely inspired by Kelly Prang. I stamped a map onto that ancient Heidi Swapp chipboard star (pre-2010 product and also part of my hoarded stash).
